The Rotary Club of Eyemouth and District welcomes all visitors to the club website.  
We are a small but active club and we received our charter on the 15th June 1972. 
The current president for 2022/2023 is Jo Pawley.

What happens if you get 11 Rotarians and volunteers together, armed with litter pickers and plastic bags for a couple of hours to cover 3 miles of local roads? An astonishing 152Kg of rubbish discarded by motorists. The first pick of 2023 it can only get better.
